The SportsXchange

Cleveland Browns (4-11) at Pittsburgh Steelers (7-8)

Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, at Heinz Field, Pittsburgh - TV: CBS

*TV announcers: Spero Dedes, Steve Beuerlein

*Keys to the game: The Steelers have won five of their past seven games by coming out swinging, including 35 first-quarter points in the past three games. The one nagging negative for QB Ben Roethlisberger are woes on third down. Pittsburgh is four for its last 20 and even when going to the no-huddle, Roethlisberger must find more effective plays on early downs. RB Le'Veon Bell has been impressive as a three-down back and had 98 total yards in the win at Cleveland. The Browns have managed no more than a field goal in the first quarter in five of their seven road games. QB Jason Campbell steadies the offense but the veteran will need a major contribution from RB Edwin Baker, who has touchdowns in his first two NFL games. Baker isn't built for much more than the 17 carries he handled last week against the Jets.

*Matchup to watch - Steelers WR Antonio Brown vs. Browns secondary: CB Joe Haden (hip) was injured in Week 15 against Chicago and didn't finish last week's game. The Bears and Jets attacked at will with Haden out of the lineup, and Roethlisberger will do the same.

*Player spotlight - Browns WR Josh Gordon: With 10 receptions, Gordon would break Ozzie Newsome's team record for catches in a single season (89, three times). Gordon had 14-237-1 against the Steelers earlier this season.

*Fast facts: Browns OLB Barkevious Mingo is tied for the NFL rookie lead with five sacks. ... Roethlisberger is 8-0 at home against Cleveland and 16-1 all-time.

WHO WILL WIN AND WHY

Pittsburgh gets its 19th win in the past 22 meetings by building a lead in the first quarter and grinding the rest of the way.

*Our pick: Steelers 19-12
